ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 

The acreage, yield, production, monthly and season average price, and crop 
value statistics in this bulletin are official State and USDA estimates prepared by 
the Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The county and area detail in these 
statistics were made possible by the participation of the Department of Agricultural 
Economics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. Market price quo- 
tations and shipment statistics are from the Market News Section and the USDA 
Agricultural Marketing Service. Other sources of data are cited in footnotes. 

Agencies in the Florida Department of Agriculture providing basic data used 
in developing statistics in this summary include the Road Guard Section, Division of 
Inspection; State Markets Section, Celery Advisory Committee, and Sweet Corn 
Advisory Committee, Division of Marketing; the Plant Inspection Section, Di- 
vision of Plant Industry and the South Florida Vegetable Exchange. County 
information on vegetable production in their counties. 

Growers, shippers, processors, sales agencies, and transportation firms volun- 
tarily supplied much of the data used in developing these official statistics. This 
public spirited cooperation is appreciated.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



SEASONAL GROUPS — Seasonal estimates are made 
for most of Florida's vegetable, melon, potato, and straw- 
berry crops to show supplies for a shorter period of time than 
the entire marketing season. The seasonalclassificationused 
for each of Florida's crops is shown on the opposite page 
along with usual planting and harvesting dates. 



selling charges. Season average prices shown for quantities 
sold to processors during the 19G3 fall crop and for all prior 
seasons represent prices paid the grower at the first receiv- 
ing point. Processing prices shown for the 1964 winter and 
spring seasons are on a delivered to the processing plant door 
basis and include transportation costs, etc. 



PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which has 
been planted for harvest during one designated season. To 
avoid duplication, acreage lost and replanted to the same 
crop in time for harvest in the same season is counted only 
once. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage harvested or 
partially harvested plus any additional acreage which reached 
maturity, but was not harvested due to labor shortages, low 
prices or other economic conditions. Acreage lost before or 
at maturity through natural causes is not included in the acre- 
age for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production of merchantable 
quality produced per acre and includes any unharvested pro- 
duction left in fields for economic reasons. 

PRODUCTION includes the quantity actually harvested 
plus any quantity that was left due to economic abandonment 
where losses of this type occur. 



TOTAL VALUE is the season average price received 
times the production of value. 

WEEKLY F. O. B. PRICE RANGE — Represents the 
low and high price received for generally good quality. Prices 
shown for Pompano are representative of sales at the State 
Farmers' Market. 

RAIL - TRUCK shipments are included in the straight 
rail shipments shown for each crop. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS — Represents the average 
number of packages per rail car based on tabulations of way- 
bills showing the contents of each car. 

MDCED RAIL CARS — For major commodities the 
quantity shipped 1 in mixed rail loads is tabulated from way- 
bills. The total quantity of each commodity is then converted 
to the equivalent of a straight rail car load. 



ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and is of merchantable quality but 
was not harvested because of labor shortages, low prices or 
other economic factors. 



TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent car- 
lots on the basis of a pre-determined load factor. A minor 
difference of one or two car lot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments exists 
because of rounding. 



PRODUCTION OF VALUE is the total production less 
the quantity abandoned due to economic reasons. 

SEASON AVERAGE PRICES for production sold on the 
fresh market represent the F. O. B. price received or its 
equivalent for all grades and quality of the commodity less 



PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT — The official USDA 
vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight basis. 
For this bulletin the official estimates for most vegetable 
crops have been converted to the most commonly used con- 
tainer. The following table gives the net weight used per con- 
tainer and the number of containers per hundredweight.

LIMA BEANS 
1964-65 



Lima bean production in Florida reached its 
climax in the middle and late 1940' s, after the de- 
pression and before the widespread use of frozen 
foods. With an increase in the use of home freezers 
and more housewives switching to easy-to-prepare 
frozen beans, demand for fresh limas decreased 
steadily. 

Acreage reached a peak in the 1945-46 season 
when 9, 100 acres were planted. That year, 2,700 
acres were planted for winter harvest and an addi- 
tional 6,400 acres were planted for spring harvest. 
Combined winter and spring acreage planted during 
every year of the 1940's exceeded 4,000 acres. In 
contrast, 1,450 acres were planted during the 1964- 
65 season, of which 350 were for winter harvest and 
1, 100 for spring harvest. 

Production during the 1964-65 season totaled 
94,000 bushels, compared to 128,000 the previous 
year. The decline in production was shared by all 
producing areas with the greatest decline occurring 
in the Lower East Coast area. 

Yields during the past year were down an aver- 
age of 9 bushels per acre from the previous year. 
During the 1964-65 season the average price per 
bushel was $3. 74. This was 8 cents below the pre- 
vious year's average but 62 cents above the 1962-63 



average. The total value of the 1964-65 crop was 
$352,000, compared to $478,000 the previous year 
and $1,960,000 for the 1945-46 crop. Harvest be- 
gan in Plant City and North Florida in October but 
by December, Pompano was the principal source of 
supply. Movement from Pompano was steady during 
December and January, but dropped in February due 
to January freeze damage. Volume increased again 
during March, was steady during April, and ended 
in May. Harvest began in the Plant City area during 
April, reached a peak during May and ended in June. 
Harvest began in the Bonifay area during May and 
was generally complete by the end of June. 

Winter limas come mostly from the Pompano 
area due to the colder weather in other growing areas. 
Most of the spring volume comes from the Plant City 
area with Pompano furnishing light volume in the 
early spring, and West Florida supplying some late 
spring supplies. Out-of-state shipments totaled 66 
carlot equivalents for the season compared to 114 for 
the 1963-64 season. Seventeen carlots moved in June 
ending shipments for the year. 

These estimates include all varieties of lima 
beans: fordhooks, baby limas and speckled butter- 
beans. Intra-state consumption accounted for over 
half of the total production during the 1964-65 season.

SNAP BEANS 
1964-65 



Hurricane Donna damaged fall beans in North 
and West Florida in September. Some young acreage 
was lost in Central Florida during the hurricane. 

Pole bean harvest was active in Gadsden Coun- 
ty during October. Light harvest for processing be- 
gan in Central Florida about the middle of the month. 
Fall planting was completed in early October in the 
Everglades and light harvest got underway the last 
week of the month. Harvest of pole beans began in 
Dade County late in October. Picking began in the 
Pompano area late in the month. 

Light supplies continued through November 
from North and West Florida areas while increasing 
from the Central Florida area. Harvest increased 
in the Everglades with peak production occurring near 
the end of the month. Pole bean harvest was active 
in Dade County and volume of bush beans from Pom- 
pano increased during the month. 

Fall harvest was completed in North, West 
and Central Florida early in December with dimin- 
ishing supplies available from the Everglades until 
after the middle of the month. Dade County furnished 
a steady supply of pole beans throughout the month. 
Spring planting started in the Everglades area the 
last week of January. Volume from the Pompano 
area was heavy until the middle of the month when 
frost damaged all fields and caused complete loss of 
considerable acreage. Pole beans in Dade County 
were producing well until the frost. 

Frost the first of February killed spring beans 



in the Central Florida area. Spring planting in North 
Florida began in late February and all acreage up was 
killed by frost the morning of February 27. Young 
plants in the Everglades were damaged by frost the 
27th. 

Spring pole bean planting began in Gadsden 
County the last half of March. Spring planting was 
completed in the Central Florida area during March 
with older beans in the Plant City area beginning to 
bloom. A few acres in the Everglades area were 
killed by frost on the 9th and 10th of March and other 
fields were damaged. Light harvest began before the 
end of the month. 

Heavy rain and hail damaged the pole bean 
crop in Gadsden County late in April. Harvest began 
about the 15th of the month in Central Florida. Har- 
vest increased in the Everglades area while declin- 
ing in Dade County and the Pompano area. 

Harvest in North Florida increased in May 
and began in Gadsden County on about the 15th. Har- 
vest in Central Florida was completed during the 
month except at Zellwood where harvest began about 
the 15th. Light supplies of pole beans were available 
from Dade County until mid-May. Volume was light 
and declining in the Everglades during May with har- 
vest mostly complete by the end of the month. Har- 
vest was completed in North Florida during the first 
week of June but Gadsden County pole beans continued 
light until the end of the month. Harvest of some 
beans at Zellwood continued until mid- June.

CABBAGE 
1964-65 



The 3,200 acres lost duringthe 1964-65 crop 
year was the largest acreage lost since 1946-47. The 
heavy freeze in the Everglades area on January 17th 
and 18th caused serious damage to the crop and the 
abandonment or outright loss of 2,400 acres. Heav- 
iest damage from this freeze was limited to the Ever- 
glades and Dade County areas with most serious loss- 
es in the Everglades. 

The 16,900 acres planted was down 7 percent 
from last year and 5 percent from the five year aver- 
age. Total production was the lowest since the 1957- 
58 season when 4, 030, 000 crates were produced. 

Hurricane Donna in early September caused 
slight damage to seedbeds in the Hastings and San- 
ford areas and the Zellwood direct seeded acreage. 
Hurricane Isbell in mid-October caused some dam- 
age to the early acreage in the Everglades area. 

Harvest of the Zellwood early crop began in 
early November and was completed by late Novem- 
ber. The late crop was harvested in April and May. 
Harvest in the Sarasota and Plant City areas began in 
late November with volume steadily increasing into 
January. These areas shipped heaviest volume in 
January but light harvest continued until late May. 
Light harvest began in the Everglades, Dade County, 
and Hastings areas in early December. Volume sup- 
plies were available from the Everglades before the 
freeze but dropped sharply after the freeze and con- 



tinued much lighter than usual for the remainder of 
the season. Harvest in both Dade County and the 
Everglades was completed in May. Peak harvest was 
reached in the Hastings area in March with cutting 
virtually complete by late April. Harvest started in 
the Sanford-Oviedo area in late November and peaked 
in April. This area furnished heaviest supplies in 
April and good volume continued through most of May. 
State-wide supplies increased up to the freeze of Jan- 
uary 17-18. Total shipments decreased in February 
but were still heavy. Peak shipments for the year 
were reached during March when 23 percent of the 
total volume was harvested. Less than 1 percent of 
the year's production was shipped in June. 

The season average price was up 22 percent 
over last year, but only 2 percent over the five year 
average. Although total quantity sold was down from 
last year, the total value was 10 percent above last 
year. 

Production from the cabbage crop was seri- 
ously curtailed by the poor growing conditions much 
of the season. Approximately 60 percent of the 
88, 000 crates produced but not harvested and left to 
rot in the field was from acreage in the Everglades 
where freeze damage was also the most severe. Low 
prices were the cause of this abandonment. Total 
production abandoned, however, was less than 16 
percent of the amount abandoned last year.

CANTALOUPS 
1965 



Acreage planted and harvested, production 
and value of production in 1965 were the highest since 
1956. The season average price was down 45 cents 
per cwt. from the previous year. 

Most plants in the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area 
were running in February and some older acreage 
was sizing fruit. Very light harvest was underway 
by late March. 

Harvest continued in the Ft. Myers-Immoka- 
lee area in April. Vines in Martin County and other 
South Florida areas were setting and sizing fruit. 

Picking was active in the Ft. Pierce-Martin 
County area by late May and the season was nearing 
completion at Ft. Myers-Immokalee. 

Non-irrigated acreage in all areas suffered 
severely in May due to the absence of appreciable 
rainfall throughout the entire month. 

Adequate rainfall in all areas several times 
in June alleviated the drought conditions but many 
fields were beyond help. Light supplies were still 



available from the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area in ear- 
ly June. Volume was at peak from the Ft. Pierce- 
Martin County area. Quality and yields were good. 
Harvest was active in the Central West Coast area 
but dry weather in May had reduced quality and size. 
Growers in the North Central and Newberry-Trenton 
areas began harvesting. 

Harvest was active in Central and North Flor- 
ida areas by mid-June and light supplies were avail- 
able from West Florida. A few melons were still be- 
ing harvested in South Florida. 

By late June, only light supplies remained in 
the North Central and Newberry-Trenton areas with 
a fair volume from the Bonifay area in West Florida. 

Light harvest continued in North and West 
Florida areas in early July but was about complete 
in other areas except for a few scattered, late fields. 

Some volume was shipped in April but the ma- 
jority of the crop moved in May and June. A large 
part of the crop is eaten in Florida.

CELERY 
1964-65 



Total production from Florida's 1964-65 crop 
was 7, 797, 000 crates, up 2 percent from the previous 
season. Season average price, however, dropped to 
$2.47, but was still 14 percent above the 10 year 
average of $2. 16. Total value of the crop dropped to 
$18, 686, 000, 10 percent below last year's, due en- 
tirely to the lower price. 

Transplanting of acreage for winter harvest 
began the last week of July in the Zellwood area and 
the first week of August in the Everglades. Trans- 
planting started in the Sanford area the first week in 
September and in the Oviedo area late in the month. 
Growers did not begin planting in the Sarasota area 
until late September. Some early ac reage transplant- 
ed in the Everglades was damaged by Hurricane Isbell 
in mid-October. Older acreage, however, withstood 
the winds with little or no damage. Freezing tem- 
peratures during January 18-19 caused some slip- 
skin on mature plants in the Everglades area. Yield 
and quality were lowered in both the Everglades and 
Sanford-Oviedo areas, but the Sarasota area was un- 
affected by the cold weather. 

Planting of the Zellwood early crop was com- 
pleted in early September and last fields were planted 
in the Sanford area the first week of December. Ac- 
reage planted after January 1 is classified as spring 



celery. Plantings continued active in the Everglades , 
Oviedo and Sarasota areas after January 1. Planting 
started in early January at Island Grove and continued 
until late April when all fields were planted. Planting 
of the Zellwood late crop began in mid-January and 
was completed during the last half of April. Growers 
finished planting at Sarasota by mid- February in Ovie- 
do by late March and in the Everglades the first few 
days of April. 

Harvest in the Everglades area got underway 
in early November and all of the Zellwood early crop 
was harvested in November. Harvest got underway 
in the Sanford area in mid-December and in the Ovie- 
do and Sarasota areas around January 1. Cutting of 
the spring acreage in Island Grove and Zellwood be- 
gan in the last half of April. 

Shipments totaled 1,376 carlot equivalents in 
December and ran above 1,300 each month through 
May. Peak movement occurred in April when 2, 032 
carlots were moved. Harvest was completed in the 
Sanford area by mid-March and in the Sarasota area 
by late May. Cutting at Oviedo and in the Everglades 
was finished in the first half of June. Harvest at Zell- 
wood was completed during the weekended July 3 and 
last acreage at Island Grove was harvested by July 10. 
Only 12 carlots were shipped in July.

SWEET CORN 
1964-65 



Acreage planted and harvested and value of 
production in 1964-65 were record highs. Production 
at 8, 710, 000 crates wasdown 7 percent from the rec- 
ord set in 1962-63 as a result of storm and freeze 
damage. 

Planting started in the Everglades in mid- 
August, Pompano in early September, Ft. Myers in 
mid-October and Dade County in mid-November. Last 
fields were seeded at Ft. Myers by the week ended 
February 6, Dade County February 13, Pompano 
March 6 and in the Everglades by April 10. Planting 
started at Zellwood the week of February 21-27 and 
was complete by the second week of May. 

Growers started harvesting in the Everglades 
in mid-October, Pompano in mid-November, Ft. 
Myers in early January and in Dade County in early 
March. Harvest was completed in mid-March at Ft. 
Myers, the first half of May at Pompano and Dade 
County and the week ended June 19 in the Everglades. 
Harvest started at Zellwood on May 17 and was com- 
plete by July 10. 

Harvest from the Pompano and Ft. Myers 
areas was fairly consistent. Growers at Pompano 
pulled only small acreages from mid-November 
through December but after January 1 harvest ranged 
150 - 730 acres per week with the exception of the 
last two weeks of the season. Ft. Myers growers 
harvested 20 - 60 acres per week. Dade County har- 
vest accounted for 20 - 490 acres weekly. Growers 



in the Everglades harvested 20 - 3,820 acres per 
week. Heaviest harvest in this area is in the fall and 
spring with spring production being much heavier 
than the fall. Cold weather in winter reduces acre- 
age and volume. 

Shipments from the South Florida area were 
heaviest in January and in May. Movement from the 
Zellwood spring crop peaked in June. Sixty-one per- 
cent of the total volume for the year was harvested 
after May 1. 

Hurricane Cleo destroyed over 800 acres in 
the Everglades August 26-27. Isbellon October 14th 
crossed from Everglades City to Stuart destroying 
in excess of 700 acres in the Everglades and 150 at 
Pompano. Many fields not ruined were flattened by 
high winds and as a result fall yields averaged only 
98 crates per acre, down 24 from the previous fall. 

Freezingtemperatures January ^-^follow- 
ing five weeks of above normal temperatures serious- 
ly damaged the crop in all areas. Growers lost 2,500 
acres in the Everglades, 750 at Pompano and 400 in 
Dade County. 

Gusty and cold winds on February 24, 25 and 
26 and freezing temperatures again on February 27 
killed an additional 4,150 acres in the Everglades. 

Total losses for the year from hurricanes, 
winds and freezes combined were in excess of 9, 050 
acres. Most but not all of the losses were replanted. 
Replanting increases growing costs considerably.

CUCUMBERS 
1964-65 



Hurricanes during the fall season, freezes 
during the winter season and drought conditions and 
mosaic infestation during the spring season lowered 
production in 1964-65. The yield per acre for all 
three seasons combined was 11 percent below last 
year's. 

Planting of the fall crop in North and Central 
Florida and the Wauchula area began in early August 
and was virtually complete by mid-September. Plant- 
ing began in the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area in early 
September , and was active until early November, with 
light planting continuing until February. Growers 
began actively planting again in February and last 
acreage was in by late March. Planting in the Lower 
East Coast area began in early September and re- 
mained active until early February when planting of 
spring acreage was completed. Planting of spring 
acreage began in the Wauchula area in early Febru- 
ary. By late March, planting had been completed in 
the Wauchula area. Planting of the spring crop be- 
gan in earl} r March in the North and Central Florida 
areas, and was virtually complete by late March. 

Fall harvest began in the North and Central 
Florida areas in late September. Heavy rains in 
North Floridafrom Hurricane Dora in early Septem- 
ber lowered yields and severely affected quality. Har- 
vest was generaUy complete in north areas by late 
November and in central areas in December. Light 
harvest began in earl} 7 October in the Wauchula area 



with peak production occurring in early November. 
Harvest was completed in December. Plants sus- 
tained considerable damage in the Pompano area from 
the winds of Hurricane Isbell in mid-October but little 
total losses were observed. Harvest got underway 
in late October and peak fall movement occurred in 
December. Supplies were heaviest from the Ft. Myers 
-Immokalee area in late November and early Decem- 
ber. Considerable volume continued from this area 
until the mid-January freeze. Harvest started in 
Dade County in early November. 

Much of the supplies available in January, 
February and early March were imports from the 
off-shore islands. A severe frost in late February 
damaged many of the plants in all growing areas ne- 
cessitating some spot replanting in the harder hit 
fields. 

Supplies increased after mid-March as har- 
vest of spring acreage began. Yields on the early 
acreage in Ft. Myers-Immokalee area and the spring 
acreage on the Lower East Coast areas were low due 
to the cold weather. Springharvest inNorthand Cen- 
tral Florida and Wauchula began in April. Peak ship- 
ments during the spring season occurred in mid-May, 
with volume dec lining until the season was over in late 
June. Quality and yields were poor except from ir- 
rigated fields. The North Florida areas finished har- 
vesting early due to drought conditions. Shipments 
in June were only 0. 4 percent of the total.

EGGPLANT 
1964-65 



Total production was a record high with eco- 
nomic abandonment occurring in the fall, winter and 
spring harvest periods, either as the result of harvest 
labor shortage or because supplies exceeded demand. 
Lowest monthly average prices were received in De- 
cember, January ;ind June. Production sold also set 
a record, but value of the crop fell short of the pre- 
vious years. Some competition was again given by 
imports from offshore Islands. 

This crop is grown in many areas of the State, 
but outside the Pompano area acreages are usually 
small and widely scattered. Production is greatest 
in the Pompano area of east Broward-Palm Beach 
Counties with harvest starting in October and continu- 
ing through May. During the 1964-65 season, this 
area marketed about 77 percent of the State's total 
production. North Florida fall "eggs" came into pro- 
duction during September and continued until the first 
killing frost. This particular season, frost held off 
and harvest extended well into December. Plant City, 
Sanford, Webster as well as North Florida produce 
both fall and spring crops. 

A relatively small, widely scattered acreage 
was grown in these areas in the fall of 1964. Harvest 
was active until late fall and quality held up well. About 
35 percent of the fall acreage harvested was grown 
in West, North and Central Florida and in the Manatee- 
Ruskin-Wauchulaarea, but less than 15 percent of the 
fall production came off this acreage, as yields, even 
with the later than normal season, were considerably 



lighter than those obtained at Pompano. 

Spring production outside the Pompano area 
was heaviest in Hillsborough County. Less than 100 
acres were harvested in the Ft. Myers-Immokalee 
area during the entire year. 

Fall crops were subjected to hurricane winds. 
Dora, in September, brought excessive rain and high 
winds to North Florida fields. Cleo was close on Dora, 
but hit the Pompano area in particular; Isbell again 
affected the Pompano crop in October. January cold 
curtailed winter supplies at Pompano which is the only 
area in volume production January through March. 

The adverse weather is a hazard confronting 
growers annually. Plantings are made somewhat in 
anticipation of it; otherwise, over-production becomes 
paramount and price structures are shattered. 

Acreage and production by counties in areas 
like Pompano that harvest continually in the fall, win- 
ter and spring seasons, with interruptions only as 
weather interferes are shown as one season. In mak- 
ing fall, winter and spring estimates, an equivalent 
acreage concept is taken. For example, this means 
a field of 100 acres harvesting from early November 
through early May would be divided into three parts: 
The average yield for the whole crop would be divided 
into production harvested prior to January 1 to get an 
equivalent fall acreage; into January, February and 
March production to get equivalent winter acreage. 
The balance of the production harvested after April 1 
and its equivalent acreage would be spring crop.

ESCAROLE 
1964-65 



The 7, 800 acres of escarole and chicory har- 
vested during the 1964-65 crop year was the largest 
harvested acreage on record. However, production 
was below last year as yields were low due to hard 
freezes in mid-January and late February. Yield 
per acre was the lowest of record. 

Fifty -nine percent of the total production was 
grown in the Everglades area, 36 percent was grown 
in Orange, Lake, Seminole and Volusia Counties, with 
most of the remainder of the crop coming from the 
Sarasota and Lake Placid areas. 

Seeding in the Everglades and Zellwood areas 
began in late August. Growers in the Zellwood area 
plant primarily for early and late harvest. Acreage 
in this area is very small during the months most 
subject to cold damage. Most growers in the Ever- 
glades seed a constant amount each week in order to 
have a steady supply through the season. 

Light supplies were available from the Zell- 
wood area in mid-October, and limited supplies were 
available from the Everglades by late October. Har- 
vest of the Zellwood early crop peaked in late Novem- 
ber. Most supplies available in December and early 
January were from the Everglades. Zellwood con- 
tinued to provide moderate supplies through Decem- 
ber but volume was light from this area in January. 
Supplies from Sarasota and Lake Placid during these 
two months were fairly steady. 

The freeze on January 17-18 caused serious 
damage to the crop in the Everglades area. Extensive 



stripping was necessary on older frost damaged acre- 
age, and much of the younger acreage was completely 
lost. Acreage in the Sarasota and Lake Placid areas 
was relatively undamaged by the freeze. 

Light supplies were available in February as 
shipments decreased from all but the Sarasota area 
which showed a slight increase in volume. Volume 
increased in March as harvest of damaged acreage 
was completed but supplies continued to remain lighter 
than normal until April. Supplies from Zellwood in- 
creased sharply in April as harvest of the late crop 
got underway. Volume from Lake Placid held about 
steady but decreased sharply from the Everglades. 
Harvest at Sarasota was also lighter in April than in 
March. 

Harvest was relatively complete in the Sara- 
sota and Lake Placid areas by mid-May. About 70 
percent of the supplies available during May were 
from the Zellwood area. Most of the remaining vol- 
ume came from the Everglades where supplies were 
rapidly decreasing. Only very light volume was avail- 
able in June from the Zellwood and Everglades areas 
as harvest was completed. 

Total value of the crop was down 23 percent 
from last year. Monthly prices were far below last 
year's in December, January and February. The 
season average price was 20 percent below last year's. 
Heaviest volume of the year was shipped in April. 
Movement in May was decreasing seasonally but was 
the second heaviest of the year.

during the 1964-65 season which produced 255,000 
hundredweight. This includes Iceberg, Romaine, 
Boston, Leaf and Bibb types. The approximate per- 
centage of each shipped from the Everglades area, 
where over a third of the volume was produced fol- 
lows: Romaine 50, Boston 25, Leaf 12, Iceberg 8 
and Bibb 5 percent. 

Each type of lettuce is packed in a container 
that is common primarily to that particular lettuce 
and each has a different net weight. Because of the 
different containers of different weights, production 
is published in hundredweight. The following net 
weights are used for the various containers when con- 
verting production to hundredweight: Romaine 25, 
Boston 20, Iceberg 35, Leaf 20 and Bibb 10 pounds. 

The Everglades normally produces about 45 
percent of the total quantity harvested and about 30 
percent of the total comes from Central Florida. Most 
of the remainder is produced in Highlands, Sarasota, 
Dade and Hillsborough Counties. 

August marks the beginning of early seeding 
in the Everglades and Zellwood areas. Growers in 
Zellwoodand other Central Florida areas plant heavy 
for early and late harvest but light during the cold 
danger period. Seeding in other areas of the State is 



a continuous process. A nearly constant acreage is 
seeded each week to furnish a steady supply through 
the harvesting period. Hurricane Cleoinlate August 
and Isbell in mid-October made replanting of consid- 
erable acreage necessary in the Everglades. 

Harvest got underway in the Everglades and 
Zellwood areas in early November. Zellwood was the 
principal source of supply during November but vol- 
ume from this area decreased in December and the 
Everglades began furnishing heaviest supplies. 

The freeze in mid-January caused heavy acre- 
age losses in the Everglades area, and seriously af- 
fected quality from this area and the Central Florida 
area. Most supplies available in February came 
from Sarasota and Highlands Counties, where the 
crop sustained only slight freeze damage. Another 
freeze in late February further damaged the crop in 
the Everglades. Volume increased in March as fields 
began to recover from the freeze damage and younger 
acreage began harvesting in the Everglades and Cen- 
tral Florida areas. 

Peak shipments occurred in April, when 24. 2 
percent of the crop was moved. Practically all of 
the volume in May came from the Everglades, Sara- 
sota and Central Florida areas. Harvest was com- 
pleted in late May.

GREEN PEPPERS 
1964-65 



Growers planted 2,600' acres more than last 
year, the highest plantings since the 1956-57 season. 
Total production was more than last year's, but total 
quantity sold was equal to last year's because of low 
prices during the months of December, January and 
February. Total value was 9 percent less than last 
year's, but 18 percent higher than the five year aver- 
age. 

The Lower East Coast area produced 54 per- 
cent of the total production, and the Ft. Myers-Im- 
mokalee area produced 30 percent. Considerable vol- 
umefromthe Ft. Myers-Immokalee area, particularly 
from the Devil's Garden section, is shipped from the 
Pompano area. 

Direct field seeding, the most common method 
of planting, started in South Florida in August. Early 
plantings in the Pompano-Martin County area were 
damaged heavily by Hurricane Cleoin late August, but 
were replanted where necessary. Hurricane Isbell in 
mid-October caused some damage to fie Ids in the Dev- 
il's Garden section of the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area 
and in the Pompano-Martin County area. The weather 
the week after Isbell, however, was very favorable 
for growth and recovery of damaged plants. 

Shipment from South Florida started in early 
November and continued through part of June, with 
heaviest movement January through April. The Pom- 



pano-Martin County and Ft. Myers-Immokalee areas 
furnished most of this volume. Frost and low tem- 
peratures in mid-January caused slight to severe dam- 
age to plants in South Florida, but little damage to 
fruit on plants. Supplies were somewhat curtailed until 
plants recovered. Some spot-resetting of young acre- 
age was necessary. A relatively small percent of the 
spring acreage was planted to fields in the Central 
Florida area, but resetting of this acreage was ne- 
cessary. Peak shipments from the Pompano-Martin 
County area occurred in February. 

Supplies began increasing from the Ft. Myers- 
Immokalee area in March when late acreage began 
production as volume from the Pompano-Martin Coun- 
ty area began gradually declining. Peak production 
from the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area came in mid- 
April, but supplies were available into early June. 

Harvest began in the Plant City area in mid- 
April, and volume supplies were available by early 
May. Light harvest began in the Sanford and Webster 
areas in early May, and had peaked by late May. 
Mosaic infestation in the Webster area was the most 
severe in several years. 

Peak shipments for the year occurred in Jan- 
uary when 18.2 percent of the crop was shipped. This 
was the first time since the 1958-59 season that monthly 
shipments peaked before March.

IRISH POTATOES 
1964-65 



The value of all potatoes produced during the 
1964-65 crop year was estimated at $28, 604,000. This 
was $3,881,000 above the previous 1955-56 record 
and 50 percent above last year. The season average 
price was $4. 70, a record high and 27 percent above 
last year's. Production was 17 percent more than last 
year but not the highest of record. 

The winter crop is grown mainly in the Ft. 
Myers - Immokalee, Everglades - Martin County and 
Dade County areas. Total acreage planted was the 
highest since the 1960-61 season and total production 
was the highest since the 1958-59 season. Earliest 
plantings were made in the Everglades area in August. 
A small acreage was planted in the Balm-Plant City 
area. Planting started at Ft. Myers in early October 
and in Dade County in late October. The Everglades 
acreage suffered only minor damage due to Hurricane 
Isbell in mid-October. 

Harvest started in the Everglades area in mid- 
December, before planting had been completed in Dade 
County. First harvest of "reds" in the Ft. Myers- 
Immokalee area began in mid-January. 

Frost and freezing temperatures on January 
17-18 caused scattered leaf burn to plants in the Ft. 
Myers-Immokalee and Dade County areas. Acreage 
in the Everglades area had been mechanically killed 
in preparation for harvest and sustained no freeze 
damage. 

Harvest of winter acreage was completed in the 



Everglades area in mid-February, about the time first 
harvest began in the Dade County area. Light harvest 
of Ft. Myers-Immokalee "whites" began in late Febru- 
ary. 

Harvest of winter potatoes continued through 
March and was completed during the last half of April 
with last supplies coming from Dade County. Demand 
was excellent and prices remained high. 

Hastings farmers produced about 71 percent of 
the 1964-65 Florida potato supplies. The record 27, 800 
acres planted in this area compared with 24,000 the 
previous spring and the previous record of 26,000 
acres in 1957. Planting started around January 1. 
Plants up at the time of the mid-January freeze were 
frozen to the ground but grew back out. Planting was 
completed in early March. Early acreage was frosted 
two or three times, but grew out favorably. Stands in 
some fields were irregular. 

Harvest started around April 1 and peaked in 
May. Yields on early acreage were down, but continu- 
ed to increase as the season progressed. Harvest was 
complete by June 4. 

Harvest of other spring acreage began in the 
Balm area in early April and was practically complete 
by May 1. In the Gainesville area, harvest began in 
early May and continued until mid-June. 

Demand was good during the entire year and 
prices in every month averaged considerably above the 
previous year's.

SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1965 



This crop is grown exclusively on the Zell- 
wood mucklandin Orange and Lake Counties. Grow- 
ers planted 2,700 acres in 1964-65 — 850 in Lake 
and 1,850 in Orange County. 

Some early acreage was harvested in late 
November and early December but most of the crop 
was cut in January and February. Light harvest con- 
tinued through March and into early April. 

Weeds caused considerable trouble in early 
acreage and reduced yields. The late crop was hit 
hard by freezes in February and March. The weeds 
and frost damage caused the loss of 1, 000 acres, 37 
percent of the planted acreage. Average yield for 
the crop was 4. 6 tons per acre, the lowest since 1959. 

Production dropped 40 percent from the pre- 
vious year due to the smaller acreage harvested and 



lower yields. 

Processors used production from 600 acres 
for freezing. Production from the remaining 1, 100 
acres was used for canning. Thirty-three percent 
of the total production was used by processors in 
Alabama, Arkansas and Georgia. Firms located in 
Florida utilized 67 percent of the crop. 

The average price of $40. 70 per ton is on a 
delivered to the processing door basis and includes 
the costs of harvesting, hauling, etc. Price for the 
1963-64 crop is on the same basis. Prices shown 
prioi to 1964 represent the amount paid the grower 
at the first receiving point. 

Value of production was $317,000, down 41 
percent from last year but still the third highest of 
record.

SQUASH 
1964-65 



Hurricane Dora destroyed some early acreage 
in North and West Florida and temporarily halted 
planting in Central Florida in early September. Before 
the end of the month, a few squash were being harvest- 
ed in Gadsden County and the Plant City area while 
planting was active in all South Florida areas. The 
crop grew well during October. Plantings in the Mar- 
tin County-Pompano area ran heavy to hybrid zucchini 
and yellow straightneck varieties with some whites, 
acorn and butternut varieties. Dade County had mostly 
yellow crooknecks while Immokalee had mostly acorn, 
yellow straightneck and green varieties. Green vari- 
eties were predominate at Sanford while Plant City 
had more yellow crooknecks. Harvest was underway 
in all areas before the end of October but volume from 
all of South Florida was light during the month. Vol- 
ume from South Florida increased in November as 
additional fields came into production. Some South 
Florida fields were abandoned early due to low prices 
in November. 

Harvest was completed in North and Central 
Florida in early December, while harvest and planting 
continued steady in South Florida. Mosaic began show- 
ing up in Dade County fields in early January. A freeze 
in mid-January caused loss of considerable acreage 
in the Pompano and Ft. Myers -Immokalee areas and 
caused heavy damage in Dade County. Volume dropped 



sharply following the freeze and mosaic began showing 
up at Pompano and became more widespread in Dade 
County. Young plants in all South Florida areas made 
good recovery during late January and early February. 
Volume was the lightest of the year in February, ex- 
cluding the beginning and end of the year, but all vari- 
eties were available. Early fields were up in the Plant 
City area by mid-month and a few fields were up in 
North Florida before the end of the month. High winds 
the first few days of March caused wind burn in the Ft. 
Myers-Immokalee and Plant City areas. Heavy rains 
and wet soils near the middle of the month damaged 
plants and delayed planting in North and Central Flori- 
da. Harvest began at Plant City before the first of 
April with most of the volume from this area yellow 
crooknecks. Volume from Dade County declined slight- 
ly in April but supplies from Pompano increased. 
Movement from both areas dropped sharply in early 
May. Harvest got underway in North Florida and the 
Sanford area in mid-April. The Sanford area had co- 
cozells, whites, butternut and yellow straightneck va- 
rieties. Harvest began in West Florida in early May, 
but most supplies came from Central Florida areas 
which were in peak harvest. Volume dropped rapidly 
during the last half of May and by June 1, only light 
supplies were available. Harvest was virtually com- 
plete in all areas by the end of June.

STRAWBERRIES 
1964-65 



Land preparation was active in all areas dur- 
ing late September and a few acres had been planted 
in the Pompano- Lake Worth area before the end of the 
month. Planting became more general during October 
as growers in Dade County, Plant City and the Starke 
areas began setting. 

Hurricane Isbell in mid-October caused the 
loss of some acreage that had just been planted on the 
Lower East Coast but the lost acreage was quickly re- 
set. Growers in the Pompano-Lake Worth area and 
Dade County completed planting in November and by 
the middle of the month plastic had been laid in most 
fields. 

Plastic was down in most fields in the Plant 
City area before the end of November. First bloom 
was reported in the Lower East Coast area during the 
first week of November, at Webster the second week 
and was general in the Plant C ity-Palmetto area before 
the end of the month. 

The first berries picked during the season 
came from the Plant City area during the last week of 
November. Light, general harvest got underway in 
mid-December in both the Plant City-Webster and 
Lower East Coast areas. Temperatures were too 
warm during December to suit berry growers but fruit 
set and quality was generally excellent. 



The above normal temperatures stimulated ear- 
ly bloom in the Starke area and by the first of January 
a few berries had ripened and were being picked. Plants 
in all areas entered January in good condition. Frost 
and freezing temperatures the morning of January 18 
killed bloom in the Starke area and caused minor bloom 
loss in the Plant City-Palmetto area. Damage from 
the cold was minor on the Lower East Coast where the 
cooler temperatures increased size and improved qual- 
ity of berries. 

Frost the 28th and 29th of January and again 
in late February caused the loss of additional bloom 
in the Starke area but the accompanying cooler tem- 
peratures were generally considered beneficial in 
other areas. 

Heavy rains March 2 caused loss of some ma- 
ture berries in the Plant City-Palmetto area but caused 
only minor damage on the Lower East Coast. Volume 
from the Plant City-Palmetto area reached peak about 
March 20 and had begun to decline rapidly by the end 
of the month. Peak volume occurred in March from 
the Pompano-Lake Worth and Dade County areas and 
in early April from the Starke area. Volume from the 
Lower East Coast and Starke areas declined rapidly 
after the middle of April and by May 1 the season was 
ended for all practical purposes.

TOMATOES 
1964-65 



Hurricane Cleo caused heavy damage to plants 
in the Pompano vine-ripe and Ft. Pierce mature green 
areas in late August and caused slight damage to the 
green crop in Dade County. Hurricane Isbell hit in 
mid-October damaging plants in Dade County, Pom- 
pano, Ft. Pierce and the Immokalee areas. The 
Manatee-Ruskin-Wauchula green crop area suffered 
damage mostly from blowing sand. Fall mature green 
harvest began during the last week of October in the 
Immokalee area. 

Harvest began in the Ft. Pierce and Manatee- 
Ruskin-Wauchula fall areas and Dade County the first 
week of November. Harvest of vine-ripes had begun 
in both the Pompano and Immokalee areas by mid- 
November. 

Planting of mature greens for spring harvest 
began in late November in both the Ft. Pierce and 
Immokalee areas and started in the Manatee-Ruskin- 
Wauchula area in early December. Planting of greens 
in Dade County was complete by January 1. Vine- 
ripe planting was light by late November but some 
planting continued into early March. Seeding of greens 
in the North Central area got underway in early Jan- 
uary. Poor market conditions in December resulted 
in the abandonment of many mature green fields in 
the Dade County and Ft. Pierce areas after second 
pick. Harvest of fall green acreage was generally 
complete in the Immokalee and Manatee-Ruskin-Wau- 
chula areas by the end of December. Some harvest 
continued at Ft. Pierce until mid-January. Harvest 



of ripes at Pompano and Immokalee and greens in 
Dade County continued. 

Frost January 17 and 18 killed the tops of 
vine -ripe plants in the Pompano area but vine-ripe 
plants in the Immokalee area escaped with wind burn. 
The freeze caused heavy damage in the Dade County 
area. Frost killed many of the plants that were at 
Ft. Pierce, virtually all of the plants that were up in 
the North Central area and plants in spots in the Im- 
mokalee and Manatee-Ruskin-Wauchula areas. 

Harvest of spring greens started in the Im- 
mokalee, Ft. Pierce and Manatee-Ruskin-Wauchula 
areas in March. Plants in the North Central area 
had some frostburn March 15-16 but no additional 
acreage was lost. Volume of vine-ripes declined 
during April as warm weather and disease caused 
early abandonment of fields. Harvest of mature greens 
in Dade County was complete by April 31. Green vol- 
ume was heavy from Immokalee during most of April 
but began dropping the last week. Volume increased 
steadily in the Ft. Pierce and Manatee-Ruskin-Wau- 
chula areas. Vine-ripe and mature green volume 
from the Immokalee area continued to decline during 
May. Volume from the Ft. Pierce and Manatee-Rus- 
kin-Wauchula areas was heavy until mid-May. Light 
harvest began during the first week of May in the 
North Central area with peak volume reached near 
the end of the month. Light harvest continued in the 
Ft. Pierce, Manatee-Ruskin-Wauchula and North 
Central areas until rains June 12th ended the season.

WATERMELONS 
1965 



Value of production during the 1964-65 crop 
yearwas $17,338,000, exceeding the record sales of 
$15,844,000 set during the 1963-64 crop year by 9 
percent. For the first time since the 1947-48 season, 
more than 50 percent of the watermelon crop was 
shipped before June, when prices are highest. This 
accounts for the high season average price and value 
of production. 

Planting of the early crop in the Ft. Myers- 
Immokalee area began during the last week of Octo- 
ber. By mid -January, planting was active in Mana- 
tee and Polk counties and all areas south. Damage 
was heavy in the freeze on January 17-18, with loss- 
es running about 25 percent of plants up along the 
Manatee-DeSotoline to complete losses in the Indian- 
town area. Damage was light in the coastal areas of 
Ft. Myers. Light harvest was underway in the Naples 
area by early February. 

Planting in Central Florida was active in mid- 
February and some early acreage was being planted 
in the West Florida area by late February. In March, 
planting was active in North and West Florida areas. 

Supplies continued to increase from the Im- 
mokalee-Ft. Myers area during March, with peak 
production occurring in May, and volume declining 
until harvest was complete in early June. Mosaic 



infestation and effects of dry weather combined to 
give yields much lower than the previous year's. 

Harvest began in the DeSoto-Hardee-Manatee 
County area and in Martin County in early May. High 
county yields were obtained in these areas due to good 
irrigation practices and only slight mosaic infestation. 
Volume from these areas peaked in late May, and by 
mid-June supplies were available only from scattered 
late fields. 

In mid-May, harvest began in Polk County, 
and by late May had begun in the Lake-Sumter-Mar- 
ion County area. Harvest started in the Newberry- 
Trenton area by the first week in June with cutting 
beginning in the Live Oak and West Florida areas dur- 
ing the next week. 

Volume harvest moved northward as the sea- 
son progressed. Harvest was active in the Live Oak 
and West Florida areas by mid-June. Volume sup- 
plies were available from North and West Florida in 
late June. Harvest was about complete by July 1. In 
May and June, 89 percent of the total volume was 
shipped. Only 2 percent of the production moved in 
July. 

A state-wide drought during the spring caused 
poor yields. Irrigated fields produced better quality 
melons and much better yields.
